University students who live in dorms and rented housing come up with all kinds of creative ways to save money from their meager budgets.
Students who want to save money or keep their recreational costs down work part-time employment. The goal is to have a positive bank balance at the start and end of each month.
While many students are known to push themselves to the absolute limit in order to save money, one has redefined what extreme means with his notion.
After admitting to consuming dog chow for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in an effort to save money, the unnamed university student gained notoriety.
In a Reddit post, the student said he began the diet after being pushed to consume some dog food. But what began as a one-time event quickly evolved into a habit to save money.
“I started eating dog food when my friend dared me, and I love it. Since that day I eat dog food at least once a day. Note that it is dry dog food, I never tried the wet ones,” the student wrote.
The man’s flatmates reportedly were shocked to realize that many of the dog food bags in the home were for him.
“When one of my other friends visited my room and saw heaps of dog food, he asked me why. I told him it’s for me and he just said ‘what the f**k,” the anonymous student wrote.
Unsurprisingly, the student’s odd diet has not been well received by internet users, who have forewarned him of terrible sickness.
